Story/History:Edit

The game of chess, invented by the Indians in prehistoric times, survives today as the classic game of strategy and thought, and also as an area on JediMud! That's right, you can match your strategy and prowess in battle with rooks, bishops, knights, kings, and queens. Where the chessboard is located is a mystery, but there is a rumor that certain old men in New Thalos, chessmasters to a one, might have a clue as to its whereabouts.
The earliest predecessor of the game probably originated in India, before the 6th century AD; a minority of historians believe the game originated in China. From India, the game spread to Persia. When the Arabs conquered Persia, chess was taken up by the Muslim world and subsequently spread to Southern Europe.
